Enabling materials freedom.

We’re re-imagining multi-material additive manufacturing from the top down.
Background

What we do?

Multi-material 3D Printing platform to accelerate new product development.
We’re building an AI & Hardware stack to optimise material exploration,
Unlock New design possibilities and reduce cost by a factor of 10.
  • Design Software

    The Additive Flow design software allows the user to allocate a number of materials within a 3D model. This can be done either manually, or informed by any simulation process. It offers unprecedented control and understanding over the functional properties of the product in question before event entering production.

  • Control Software

    Using our python API designers, engineers and scientists can quickly gain full control our our system to explore new composites and get instant feedback from our advanced sensors, all in real-time. It’s also what underlies our click-n-print interface for novice users.

  • Hardware

    Everything is enable through our purpose built extruder, all software capabilities are tested through real-life experiments and the data is used to improve its intelligence.  We’ve designed it in a modular fashion so it can be mounted directly onto a cartesian 3-axis system, a 6-axis industrial robot or simply onto your workbench.

Applications

Our system can integrate within the product development cycle at different stages.

Research

The search space for new materials is large and complex, with our system new polymers and composites can be very efficiently explored, tested and produced with minimal human intervention.

Development

3D printing materials are expensive and in most cases sub-optimal for the desired function. Our technology can reduce the cost of functional prototypes and improve performance through the use of targeted materials.

Implementation

Are you ready for maximum impact? The Additive Flow manufacturing suite can integrate within an industrial framework, unlocking new product possibilities for advanced applications.

Created to drive sustainability and engineered for performance.

8.3 billion metric tons of plastic have been created* and more than 91% of it isn’t being recycled. Additive Flow founding mission is to accelerate the use of sustainable materials and advanced, including recycled plastics by enabling the manufacture of high value products.
